He attended the first Cambridge (NZ) Summer Music School, 1946, with Douglas Lilburn as composition tutor. He traveled to England in 1948 on a New Zealand Government Bursary to study composition at the Guildhall with Benjamin Frankel, plus much freelance work and travel. In 1954 a British Council scholarship enabled him to study under Petrassi in Rome. He also worked in Italy as musical director of an independent ballet company. In 1957 a further British Council Scholarship enabled him to study with Carl Orff in Munich. He traveled back to New Zealand in 1958, staying there until 1960 teaching and composing. During the 1960’s he spent time in both Australia and England composing, teaching and studying with several trips back to New Zealand. He was awarded the Mozart Fellowship at the University of Otago for 1973-74. During 1975-76 he was teacher of composition at the Sydney Conservatorium, then returned to London. In 1977 he was back at the Sydney conservatorium teaching part-time, while conducting five principal Australian orchestras. He returned to New Zealand in 1984 conducting and freelance composing while based in Taupo. In 1991 he moved to Waiheke Island where he currently resides and is still active as a composer and teacher.
